Evaluation of Phenotypic Trait Analysis Of Cucumber Germplasm

( Volume 4 Issue 9,September 2017 ) OPEN ACCESS

The present research work has 24 genotypes of cucumber were evaluated to find out their similarities and differences based on numerical traits. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design (RBCD) with two replications. Numerical traits of the genotypes were measured according to the coding criteria specified by European Cooperative Programmed for Plant Genetics Resources (ECPGR) 2008. Data showed great variation for almost all the traits. Maximum germination (67.5%) was observed in genotype Mardan local while minimum germination (17.5%) was recorded in genotype 28295. The genotypes Haripur local and 28293 showed early flowering. Similarly highest yield was observed in USA Poinsett, Dargai local and Mardan local. These genotypes could be chosen for crossing with other genotypes like 28295 and Sialkot selection having low germination rate and low yield to get a better genotype of cucumber with high germination and maximum yield. Correlation analysis represent that yield was positively correlated with fruit length (.523** P≤0.01) and fruit width (.439* P≤0.01). While fruit per plant showed positive significant correlation with vine length. Present findings are applicable in cucumber cultivation in swat and other areas with similar climatic conditions. This will intern help to improve the economic return and revenue generation of the farmers.
